Gerard Vroomen o prioritetah:
Zero-setback posts are lighter, saving you another 10-30 grams (every little bit helps and you can then put that saved weight into a 500g saddle like the Brooks!). Continue reading “Zakaj berem bloge 13”

Zakaj berem bloge 11 – posebna testna edicija

nsmb, kako stvari stoje v svetu testov:
preberi vse, tole je samo za prigrizek:
Negativity?
No one likes a whiner, especially the mountain bike industry. So what happens when you find something less than exemplary about a product you are testing? There’s a few options:
1. Compliment sandwich
So you found something that grinds your gears about the bike but you don’t want to be the squeaky link (squeaky links don’t get the oil, they get ignored, put in the corner, or chopped). Remember that although you tell your mother that you’re a real, big boy journalist, deep down you know you’re just here to lube the industry, so wrap the less-than-glowing parts of your review between or around some really effusive positives. Example: if you don’t like the handling/ suspension/ the build quality/ parts spec, then just quickly gloss over that fact with a cursory mention, then cover your tracks with an Although, But, or However. “I thought the tire choice was less than ideal for the trails we used on our test track BUT the attention to detail of BRAND-X to spec a silver-coloured bottle cage on production models was an inspired decision that shows they really get it.”

Jonas o Leninu:
Kdaj nam bo dovolj? Zakaj ne gremo takoj protestirat na ulice! Aja, sej smo že šli, na Wall Street in tja pred borzo na Bavarcu, a nismo? Oziroma, so šli. Tretja oseba. Zame je bilo premrzlo, pa brez zamere. Sebe si tako ali tako predstavljam bolj kot guruja, kot pa aktivista. Oficirja revolucije, ne pešaka. “Možgani morajo bit na toplem”, je rekel že Lenin, citat je iz wikipedije. Vem, ker sem ga sam dodal.

Jonas o teflonu:
Ko so šli Američani na luno, so nam mulcem v šoli potem še dolga leta učitelji razlagali, da je bilo drago, ampak ne zaman. Da so se znanstveniki zraven toliko novega naučili, da je ves svet profitiral od novih izumov in pogruntavščin, ki jih zdaj vsi uporabljamo. Recimo teflon, da se ne prime. Ob vrnitvi ob atmosfero bi se astronavti scvrli, če ne bi znanstveniki na hitro v nekaj mesecih izumili posebnega zunanjega premaza, odpornega na megavročino. Do takrat še ni obstajal, ker se ga ni potrebovalo in so ga na hitro izumili. Zdaj pa lahko na njem tudi navadni smrtniki jajčka cvremo, ne da bi se zapekla. Res vesoljska tehnologija, tale teflon.
Bogme, zmeraj je bil teflon. Drugega primera za iznajdbo iz vesolja še v življenju nisem slišal, tako, da bi običajen človek kaj od nje imel. Continue reading “Zakaj berem bloge 9”

Jonas o žganju:
Jonas o žganju:
Tiste sorte knjiga, ki ti jo denimo posodi kolegica tvoje frišno bivše, ki ti je baš strla srce. Vsaj v mojem primeru je bilo tako. Z besedami “meni je pomagala” mi jo je položila v roke in s toplim stiskom roke in z globokim sočutnim pogledom, da mi je bilo že tisti trenutek lažje pri duši, ker sem vedel, da se bova žgala čez kak teden, ko bom imel izgovor za obisk, lej, knjigo sem prinesel in na bivšo uspešno pozabil.

clander o zaporih:
In fact, most white people would love to be locked up for their beliefs provided that they could go to a jail with private toilets, plenty of books and no rape.

bikesnob o investicijskih bankirjih:
If any one of my seventeen children expressed an interest in becoming a professional bike racer I’d steer them towards any number of more honorable professions. Weed dealing, fetish pornography, investment banking…I’d proudly stand around the water cooler boasting that they’d chosen any of those career paths over professional bike racing.
